Spellbinders New Inspirations Blog Hop – Destinations China by Lene Lok – Lucky Clouds + GIVEAWAY

Hello Friends!

I’m joining in a blog hop celebration to help celebrate a new line that just became available to Spellbinders – Destinations China by Lene Lok. 

These dies are inspired by the Chinese and Asian culture and I felt a draw to it.  My usual cards, my family would probably not find pretty, but I am guessing they’d love cards made using the Destinations China product line…because they’re kind of Asian…lol.  Okay…maybe A LOT Asian.  

Gold and red are classic celebratory colors in the Asian culture – especially for weddings and during the Lunar New Year.  In fact, it’s exactly what I had in mind when I saw these new products.  So I used gold foil cardstock – not glitter (that’s not Asian…ha!).  

To create the background, I used PINK cardstock.  Then I used Candied Apple and Fired Brick Distress Oxide inks to add color – giving it a glow in the center where there is less ink.  So pretty – I’ve been obsessed with this technique lately.  

The sentiment is from Mama Elephant’s Lunar Extras stamp set (no surprise right?)…again with the Asian Lunar New Year’s celebration theme.  I thought it was perfect and brings my vision for this card to life.  I stamped and embossed the sentiment in white over black cardstock and centered it towards the top.  That’s a wrap for a pretty simple (pretty and simple) card!  I hope you enjoyed that!  I really appreciate you stopping by and I hope you’ll find lots of inspiration from this blog hop.  Enjoy your day!

  2. Great technique using the oxide inks to add a glow to the center of the background. You certainly created a gorgeous card! I think this cloud die will be great for lots of different scene-building backgrounds, too.

  4. Gorgeous card! Asian for sure! There are so few products available for Lunar New Year, that, every year, I struggle to make cards for the occassion. There was that Cherry Lynn die of a rooster that I somehow found just in time for 2017, the Mama Elephant set, and that’s about it. This release will make a good base for years to come. And it is so versatile that I can use it all year. Love it! So happy! Thanks for the inspiration.
